Regular price £18.90
The Antinori family are regarded among the most historic dynasties in the wine world. Their involvement in wine began in 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori was inducted as a member of the winemakers’ guild in Florence.
Since then, a period spanning an incredible twenty six generations, the family has always been directly involved in the industry, developing their reputation for the marriage of tradition and cutting edge development.
Today, things are overseen by Albiera Antinori and her sisters Allegra and Alessia. They have continued to express the family passion for viticulture, constantly striving to identify even the smallest areas for quality improvement. In recent years, this search has led to them planting experimental varietal clones in the vineyard, as well as challenging their conventional fermentation and barrel-ageing techniques.
Their vines in Tuscany and Umbria produce the wines from which they have developed their stellar reputation throughout the generations. And it is these sites that perfectly exhibit their key philosophy – their ancient roots play an important role in their work but do not limit to their innovative spirit.
